From the reviews:
"Database programming in Microsoft’s .Net approach is accomplished via ADO.Net. … So in this book we might expect to find a detailed description of ADO.Net with C# examples. The author delivers on the expectation, covering ADO.Net in two of the 11 chapters. … it can be used as a reference text. … absolute beginners will find an abundance of useful information. … most of the content will more than satisfy beginners." (Daniel Moth, The Computer Bulletin, November, 2002)
"Database Programming with C# by Carsten Thomsen, is for people who have already done database programming in Visual Basic or Java and also know the basics of C# programming. … The appendix, showing connectivity to SQL Server 2000 using XML, is particularly useful. The coverage of unusual topics such as message queues and hierarchical databases demonstrates Thomsen’s mastery over .NET, making this book a must read, particularly for database programmers with basic knowledge of C#." (Alokesh Bhattacharyya, Computer Today, July, 2002)
Need to master database programming in C#? Then Database Programming with C# is your ultimate resource! You will learn to create database details like tables, constraints, projects, stored procedures, views, triggers, and more. You will build on example code from the book?s beginning, wrapping up in the final chapter.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

This cannot help anybody. It like reading something in a newspaper. No way to apply it.
We can cut this review short by just saying that the author delivers on the expectation with ADO.NET being covered in 2 (out of the 11) chapters. Chapters 3A & 3B describe the connected & disconnected layers and constitute more than a third of the book's size. However, what dominates these chapters and indeed the rest of the book is the many lengthy tables listing methods of the various framework classes. Not only does this get in the way of an enjoyable read but it is just a rehash of the already excellent help system.
Reading this book cover to cover can also become tiresome due to a lot of repetition. The flip-side to this is that the book can be used as a reference text. Claiming the user level to be intermediate-advanced is ambitious although absolute beginners will find an abundance of useful information.
So what do the other chapters cover? The first one claims to be a 'quick intro to C#' but ends up being an overview of .NET in general; The second one introduces databases at the most basic level and really should have been considered prerequisite knowledge (i.e. read Codd, Date or Elmasri etc); the fourth chapter describes VS.NET with its database tools/wizards and the fifth one describes structured exception handling (why?!). There is some good material in chapters 6-8 on stored procedures, views, triggers and message queues. SQLXML is introduced in the appendix but it would have been nice to see more XML coverage throughout the book.
To summarise, if we can leave aside the style and bad organisation of the book, most of the content will more than satisfy beginners.
My number one criteria for a book is that it's interesting. I read the whole thing and never got bored even though I was already familiar with much of the material. That's a big plus in my book. The content is good and the examples are practical and well discussed. On the other hand, I think he does a great job of discussing things in proportion to how important they are. Let's face it, twenty examples of using the DataAdapter Configuration wizard is silly and there's a title or two out there that goes down that road. This is what I really enjoyed because he shows you both ways of doing just about everything (using code or doing it with UI tools) and explains the what's and hows.
I've liked every book he's written and this is no exception.
but this one more than makes up for the issues found in the VB .NET book. I particularly like the
concurrency description and sample code, but also the SQLXML chapter is great.
Personally, I think that the many tables in chapters 3A and 3B should be moved to an appendix,
but as they're referenced in the chapters they do serve a purpose other than filling the book,
which was my original impression.
The chapter on exception handling is very good, and I particularly like the coverage of the Debug class,
which is something that I as a veteran VB programmer isn't all that familiar with.
I got this book mainly for the SQL Server coverage, but I deal with other database, such as MySQL
and Access now and then, so the inclusion on sample code for connecting to these database is just great.
Thomsen, move those tables to an appendix and you'll have the best C# database book out there. Still,
5 stars is what I rate this book, because the coverage of various database topics, including
Message Queuing, Active Directory, and Microsoft Exchange Server, all of which I deal with occassionally,
can't be found elsewhere.
I haven't finished reading the entire book as I only just got it, but the stuff that I've read and the bits I've flicked through
makes me say; Good job, and a much better job than your previous work.
I didn't plan on investing in this book (got someone else to pay), based on the VB .NET one, but after reading what I've read so far, I can only recommend it; it's so much better.
